Thank You!

During the height of the pandemic we were receiving more than 150 calls a day from distressed older people without enough food in the house and who were anxious, alone and afraid. In response to this we created the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) to provide much needed support to the most vulnerable members of our community. Our emergency appeal to raise the funds to support the CERT is now closed, but we wanted to thank all the members of the public who helped raise £6,997. Your support helped our organisation to provide vital services to the older people of East Sussex during lockdowns and social restrictions. Your donations helped to provide practical and emotional support from befriending to essential shopping deliveries and prescription pick-ups, as well as vital information and advice via our over the phone service. 

We still have a Community Response Team in place to help older people to get back into their local communities with friendly volunteer companions offering telephone be-friending, escorted walks, shopping trips together and more activites as government guidlines allow.

We do not take for granted that our work would not be possible without supporters like you, so once again 'Thank You' for your support.
